Magical Morning in January
January 18, 2013
This little chickadee drew me outside.
The wonder of hoarfrost kept me in my wintery garden for a bit.
My purple birdcage is only partially covered.
Our backyard fence, bent from heavy snowfall earlier this winter.
I counted six nuthatches at our feeders today along wit a multitude of chickadees.
When the sun appeared, the glistening hoarfrost was magical.
My garden ‘Buggettes’ prove to be colorful bright spots this time of year.
Hoarfrost looks downright prickly here!
Another nuthatch, ready for his turn at our feeders.
Trying to capture the glistening as hoarfrost is struck by sun’s warmth.
My glass Ladybug is another bright spot in my winter garden.
Clusters throughout my garden were covered with hoarfrost, but the sun was fading fast.
Joe Pye Weed covered with hoarfrost in front of my blue chairs.
For a minute I didn’t recognize this! Metal obelisk waiting for spring plants to emerge.
As the sun disappeared, I snapped this last shot & faded into the warmth of my house. Thanks for stopping by! Especially in the depth of winter!!
